comment NVIDIA 173 drivers/nvidia-settings are never loaded on boot
Yes. But it has this nice preview button. This way we can look whether the tool is correctly saving the wrong data, or badly tries to save the right data!

Are you sure that the file before and the file after (the /etc/X11/xorg.conf) are different or are the exactly the same? Did you really launch it with "gksu" like I specified?

I've updated the description of my answer a little. I hope it's clear now!

comment ATI proprietary driver performance?
Does glxgears work? Does it have decent framerates? Can you run compiz? I would assume Ubuntu defaults to the opensource ati drivers if they are compatible. (and only to vesa, when not)

But does it default to the open drivers or does it default to VESA for you?

a hardcore programmer? Is that when we code naked while standing on a bed of spikes? with just one hand, and the other in the mouth of a lion?

comment NVIDIA 173 drivers/nvidia-settings are never loaded on boot
Ohw, that would be new thing. It just gave an error in the past about permissions. That's why i usually make it run using gksu (so that the whole application has root privileges). So it doesn't save after you click that option. What happens when you click the preview? Does it suggest an alternative configuration? Compared to the current configuration?

comment USB Storage Device Automount
Does it also happen when you boot from a live-cd or live-usb? It's the whole 'i upgraded to' statement, that makes it quite hard to figure this out. Was it a fresh install? Or was a customized ubuntu, perhaps with a bunch of PPA's, that you were upgrading?

Hmm. That works here and you don't mention actually clicking on the 'save to X configuration file' button. And you also don't mention if you launched it usin gksu or not. I've mentioned intentionally. You need to be root to overwrite your xorg.conf

@TGP1994 You are right, I formulated my instructions in a confusion manner. The point was, you need to save the settings to your xorg.conf and you can only do that as root.
